g'day london town.

I must firstly apologize for the lack of posts.  Just when I was getting on a roll too!  So much has been happening in my life lately - in the past couple of weeks I have gone from employed to not-so, put my car on the market and have lodged my ancestry visa to live and work in London Town!

I could not be more excited / anxious / petrified about the massive decision to move 24,000km away from my home, family and friends.  I guess you could say I had a bit of an epiphany this month.  I finally came to the realization that life really is too short to work in a job you don't enjoy, to have regrets or those "what-if?" thoughts.  For me, I came to a cross-road in my life where I had never been before.  After always having had a stable life for most of my life - ie. full-time study, full-time work, long-term boyfriend, still living at home, I was suddenly thrown into a world of unemployment and singleness - basically a life without commitment.  So I figure if I don't make a crazy decision to move overseas now - I don't think I ever will!

Early July will bring about a whole new life for me.  No car - it seems 'the Tube' will be my new best friend.  None of the luxuries (including a home-cooked dinner every night and being able to afford expensive skincare) I have always been accustomed to.  The inability to pick up the phone when I am feeling ill with home-sickness.  No cuddles with my puppy.  No instant words of reassurance from the people I love.  I will have to rely on the few contacts I have in London to show me the ropes, and I alone will have to figure out a reliable source of income - not to mention finding somewhere to live!  All this while trying to maintain and inspired and happy lease on life.  I will prove to myself that I can do it!

Anyway I thought I'd leave you with some lovely British visuals today, with the promise of getting my 'arse' back into blogging!

Cheerio darlings!

Very exciting stuff.
You will love London, and most importantly, London will love you!
However, all those images of union jacks are reminding me of a certain sequinned union jack dress....?

Thank you m'love! Oh I hope London goes easy on me!

...and I should have never gotten rid of that dress on eBay haha. I'm sure I'll be channeling good old Geri Halliwell again in no time :) xx
